…while I was eating breakfast but I forgot it by the time I sat down at the computer.

Awww… what a lovely, perfect couple. I have heard so many women complain about their husbands’ hobbies and I’ve never understood that. Why would you complain about your husband leaving the house to go hunting, fishing or golfing? That’s your “me time”. Help him load his stuff in the car, push him out the door, send the kids, if you have any, to grandma’s or out to play with the neighbor’s kids and you have the house all to yourself for a little while. And you have a problem with that? I don’t get it.
Even more, I don’t get women who complain about their husband “spending too much time on the computer,” unless it’s that you wish he’d go fishing and get completely out of your hair. I mean, he’s there, in the house, with you, not out running around somewhere. You know where he is! That’s a good thing. If it’s a matter of him not getting around to the Honey-Do List, that’s simple – get on the computer before he does and don’t get off it until he knocks a couple of items off the list. And if it’s a matter of wanting to spend more time with him, well go spend time with him. He’s right there! Just go sit down next to him and suddenly you’re together. Computing is something you can do together and you don’t have to touch any slimy worms or icky dead animals or anything like that. What could be better?
For what it’s worth, we’ve been married almost 34 years so #1, we both must be doing something right, #2, all of you younger women need to listen to me because I know what I’m talking about.
